The Fairview was awesome! We really enjoyed our stay in New York ! The beds were great and all was very clean! Nice and pretty quite ! I would always stay again at the Fairview. The communication went pretty well with Mark.

Beautiful flat in Brooklyn

We enjoyed our stay at this beautifully restored flat very much. The room is very comfortable - clean & tidy, top quality linen, and a bathroom complete with a gorgeous clawfoot bath. The well-stocked kitchen more than make up for the lack of in-room tea/coffee facility. The flat is conveniently located: subway is 2 minute walk, supermarket is just across the road. The service & communication are prompt and helpful. Being slightly away from the downtown Brooklyn and the hip Williamsburg makes Fairview great value for money. All in all, it was a great stay and would definitely return for future visit.

An outstanding stay

My wife and I often visit New York, and we’re excited for many more after staying at the comfortable, private and affordable Fairway Inn. Most importantly, the owners of this marvelously restored brownstone strive for a rare level of excellence. Our room, the Winthrop, was immaculate. The linens were fresh. And the accommodations in the kitchen were just right. Our stay allowed us to enjoy New York without interearence from the quirks of any traditional lodge. With all of these glowing words, I must confess the neighborhood may seem less safe than other populated parts of the city. But we always felt safe. Honestly, we had better meals in Brooklyn than anything we found on Manhattan. Try the Italian place about a mile away on Nostrand Avenue. Affordable and fan-flipping-tastic. Another confession — we’re stealing a lot of the ideas put into the bathroom we used. It was just our style. See you again, Fairview!

A hidden gem

I stayed two nights in the Hawthorne room and it's a hidden gem. Bedding and towels were better than many four-star hotels. A hardwood floor and crown moulding touches. Kitchen area was just a few steps away. Mark was a great, helpful host. Neighborhood is "busy," but people went out of their way to be friendly and offer directions or cafe recommendations. I would certainly stay at The Fairview again.

Point d’attache agréable et confortable

Sept 2017 : Nous avons passé un agréable séjour, la maison est comme décrite, confortable, jolie, typique, propre et le service est conforme également au descriptif. A 100 m se trouve une entrée de métro. Il faut néanmoins savoir que le trajet pour se rendre à Manhattan prend environ une 40aine de mn en moyenne, mais c’est ce qui justifie le prix par rapport à tout ce qui se trouve sur Manhattan. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le Wi-Fi gratuit.Nous recommandons cette location. Bon séjour.

Top class

My Home away from Home

Marc responded to my messages very quickly and with precise information, when I arrived help was there to help me with my luggage if need be. I was welcomed with freshly made tea if I wanted. The place was gorgeous, very well-decorated. My room looked much superior to the photographs on the website. The bathroom was very clean. Hair-dryer, shampoo, conditioner and brand-new towels were provided; my room was refreshed while I was there with clean beddings, towels, named it and it was done. The Fairview is at the center of everything. There are many good restaurants and great shopping, Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Garden/park/zoo are close by, and subway is only 3 minutes away. So convenient! Highly recommended I will stay at the Fairview again and again. This is my home away from home, I love it. Thank you very much. Marcia
